Terms for Marine Equipment and Supplies
The following terms are often used when purchasing marine supplies and equipment:

Navigation System: Early nautical adventurers found their way across the ocean and seas using the stars. Today, boat owners use highly advanced electronic global positioning systems, commonly referred to as GPS, to find their way. They use satellites to mark your position anywhere in the world, from just outside your marina to the center of the Pacific Ocean.

Depth Finder: Sometimes also called depth sounders, since they use sonar technology, this is an essential piece of equipment for owners of large boats with deep hulls. Using sonar to send a signal that bounces off the sea floor, the depth finder can accurately track the amount of time it takes for the signal to return. This tells the depth finder how deep the water is at any location.

Bilge Pump: The bilge is the area underneath the boat deck. Over time, water will slowly collect here, either because of leaks or rain. A bilge pump works to remove the water from the bilge. The size of bilge pump you need depends on the size of your boat, with large boats demanding big bilge pumps.

Dinghy: A smaller boat that is attached to your larger one. The dinghy serves two purposes. It allows you to come ashore in shallow areas, which is great for sailboat and yacht owners. Perhaps it's most important function, however, is that the dinghy acts as a lifeboat in an emergency. A quality dinghy is extremely buoyant and very difficult to sink.

Tackle: Most people think tackle refers to fishing equipment, but for nautical purposes tackle refers to the rigging on your boat. This includes all the ropes and clips that are used to keep the sails in place. Always have extra tackle on hand in case of an emergency.

"I flew in and asked them to perform an eddy current inspection in the propeller for my Mooney. They quoted my husband an amount over the phone that was reasonable. When I got there, they said that it would cost almost twice as much and would only take cash. I had no choice but to have it done there because I had to put the plane down for an annual the next day. I will never go back. ..."
